When it comes to new recipes, the internet has to be the most wonderful addition to my recipe library. I'm pretty sure you can type any three ingredients into Google and it'll find you a recipe for something. On account of this, husband and I have been trying all kinds of new dishes over the last year or so. If we like the dish, we'll usually bookmark it to find easily later. As we continue with these culinary adventures, both the wins and the fails, I'll be sharing them with you.
This weekend, we tried a Food Network recipe for Grilled Salmon Steaks with Chipotle Ponzu sauce. Rather than use the green beans that the recipe called for, we had some fresh broccoli that needed using so made a broccoli/carrot medley instead. Seeing as I was cooking rice in the rice cooker (one of our most used kitchen appliances, a gift from our buddy Jessica) I went the easy route and popped the veggies in with the rice to steam briefly. Unfortunately the salmon took a couple minutes longer than anticipated on the grill so the veggies were a tiny bit over-steamed, but still tasty!
This recipe was a good one, although we ended up with a lot of the Ponzu sauce, and if I were to make it again, I'd definitely use less orange juice seeing as it had a very strong orange flavor. That's not a bad thing but husband and I both prefer our ponzu sauce to be a little less citrusy. It's a personal preference of course. I would say this entire meal cost about 20 minutes to cook, and probably would have taken less time if it hadn't been for the rice.
If you have a favorite recipe that you think I should try, leave me a comment and I'll add it to the list!
